If you're not up for cooking Easter dinner this year, several restaurants in the region will be open April 20.
And you'll find more than just the traditional carved ham on the menu. Many restaurants are focusing on brunch, whether it be lavish buffets or off-the-menu.
Here is just a sampling of some restaurants opening their doors on Easter Sunday.
The restaurant will be serving a special Easter brunch from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. on April 20, available by reservation-only.
Bar manager Michelle Carr said this is the second year the Caddy Shack is serving the Easter buffet, which will include prime rib au jus, honey-glazed ham, oven-roasted turkey, chicken piccata, lobster mac 'n' cheese and broiled tilapia with herb butter.
Diners also can reach for roasted vegetables, omelets, salads, breads, stuffing and desserts from the buffet.
The price is .95 for adults, and .95 for children ages 8-13. Children 6-and-under are .95.

Chef Ben Beaver said the city restaurant will be serving its usual Sunday brunch menu from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. with several specials. However, Beaver couldn't reveal just yet what Easter specials will make the menu.
You can be sure to find the popular eggs Benedicts, stuffed French toast and chicken fried steak. Otherwise, the Speakeasy's regular menu will be offered after brunch and run until 11 p.m.

No specifics yet on what this Carlisle Italian restaurant will be rolling out for Easter. But the restaurant will be open all day serving a full dinner menu as well as Easter specials. We can take a guess that ham likely will be one of the specials.
Hours will be noon.-8 p.m.
60 Pine St., Carlisle, 717-243-6141
Stop by for the Sunday brunch buffet served 10 a.m.- 2 p.m. at both locations of T.J. Rockwell's in Elizabethtown and Mechanicsburg.
The buffet covers made-to-order omelets and Belgian waffles along with breakfast items such as sausage and home fries as well as carving and stir fry stations, salads and desserts.
Elizabethtown manager Randy Bailey said the buffet will lean toward traditional Easter items with carved ham. Price is .95 for adults and .95 for children 10 and under.
In addition, the restaurant will be open all day through midnight and serving off of its regular menu.
Most of the business we do for Easter will be for brunch. The nighttime is pretty slow, at least according to previous years, Bailey said.
The restaurants accept reservations for parties of 8 or more.
